I like to think that it is. I don’t think I would ever say tennis is too stressful, but I do believe it is a fantastic way to get the body moving.
That’s a great statement, and maybe a little counterintuitive. I know some people are put off by the thought that exercise can be bad for you, but it is true. I know I was. So as much as you may think you have to exercise to get your body moving, there is a lot more to it than that, and it doesn’t hurt to try sometimes.
One of my biggest problems when it comes to exercise and fitness is with my legs. I love to move around. It keeps me and my body active, and I love to jog. But my legs, they act like they can’t move because of my Achilles tendon. I workout with my trainer twice a day, and I do a lot of walking. But its so much easier to do a lot of walking when your Achilles tendon is healthy.
I’ve had a lot of people tell me that exercising with a sports band is like trying to walk on a tightrope. But I’ve seen what walking with a sports band can look like. It seems like when your Achilles is getting squeezed in a tight spot (which is why I have my trainer twice a day) it can get kind of painful. And you would think with a tight Achilles you would want to do something about it.
I’ve also seen a ton of videos of people who can’t even walk properly walking on a tight rope. Walking on a tight rope or a tight bungee cord is a bit like having a tight Achilles, but just like having a tight Achilles you can’t do it without pain. At least I can’t.
There’s no question that tennis is a good workout for the body. Tying up the Achilles tendon is one of the most painful things you can do to your body and is one of the worst things you can do to your body. However, after all the years I’ve had to take the rope and bungee cords off my feet, I think I can say that they are a bit of a waste of time.
It’s like having your Achilles tendon tied up with an elastic band, then pulling it off your feet is like having sex with your wife, not really a good end, but it beats the hell out of playing tennis.
Well-known tennis coach Nick Schumacher says it’s not something you should do to your wife. The only way to get your Achilles tendon back is to do a full muscle rebuild.
Tennis is a lot like eating with a knife and fork. It takes a lot of work to get your body back into shape. And when you eat a poor quality food, you will most likely have a bad time doing it.
I’d say tennis is actually a better workout than any other type of exercise. Not only is it a great cardio workout (which brings with it a great increase in muscle mass), it’s also a great way to increase your strength, which in turn allows you to get a lot stronger without having to do any heavy lifting. Also, if you can actually get your hands to working right, then you can work on your fitness more than just your arms and back.
